Nova Scotia Health is committed to fostering an environment that is healthy, safe and respectful that values diversity, and where all persons are treated and treat others with respect and dignity. We have a shared responsibility to promote and sustain a respectful workplace, where all team members actively welcome diversity and work collaboratively towards ensuring a culture of respect.
The resources on this site are intended to help Nova Scotia Health team members (employees, physicians, volunteers, students, and learners) deepen their understanding of respectful workplace behaviour and provide examples of how we can all contribute to a culture of respect at work.
Please review Nova Scotia Health's Respectful Workplace Policy for definitions of offensive and disrespectful behaviour, and the procedures to follow for formal and informal complaints.
